THE TEAM NEWS

PUMAS UNAM

  • Pumas UNAM are undefeated so far in their four Clausura matches, registering two wins and two draws that have them near the top of the standings with eight points. They enter this contest following a 1-1 away draw at Santos Laguna the last time out.
  • Los Universitarios are at full strength entering this game. The lone absentee will be centre-back Nicolas Freire, who continues to deal with an undisclosed injury. The rest of the squad shouldn’t change much from the one that had been playing in recent weeks.

Expected starting XI: Alfredo Saldivar; Alan Mozo Rodriguez, Manuel Mayorga, Johan Vasquez, Luis Quintana; Juan Pablo Vigon, Andres Iniestra; Sebastian Saucedo, Pablo Barrera, Favio Alvarez; Carlos Gonzalez

ATLETICO SAN LUIS

  • Surprisingly, San Luis are also undefeated in their first four Clausura matches although they have won just once during that span. They are coming off a 2-2 draw against Guadalajara and have scored five goals in their last three games.
  • San Luis should be at full strength but there is one big doubt upfront as there’s no clarity on whether Ian Gonzalez or German Berterame will partner up with Nicolas Ibanez upfront.

Expected starting XI: Carlos Rodriguez; Matias Catalan, Dionicio Escalante, Fernando Leon, Luis Ricardo Reyes; Luis Felipe Gallegos, Camilo Mayada, Javier Cortes; German Berterame (Ian Gonzalez), Nicolas Ibanez, Anderson Julio

THE PREDICTION

Pumas have already scored eight goals in four Clausura matches and three of those games have ended with both teams scoring, meaning we could be in line for action at both ends of the pitch. The same thing has happened in San Luis’ last three games, so both clubs could be in line to deliver an open match. Pumas have been far better overall this season, and they look far more composed than a San Luis side that has been overachieving since the start of 2020. The hosts should find a win here with few issues as they have won their two home matches in the Clausura so far.
